When you swim here, there's a VT500 Kastom Owner fee (Au$6), which helps the land owner cover the costs of keeping the facility clean and and resist the big money offered by developers. Please pay it happily.

A beautiful blue hole with modern toilet facilities for a mere 500vt per person. Amazing blue clear waters with a couple of fun rope swims. Personally my favourite blue hole, with access for Oyster Island resort via kayak or rubber ducky

This blue hole is very deep, crystal clear and access is easy. Pay when you enter and stay as long as you want to. Not too busy .

Great spot for a quiet swim in fresh water. Good way to directly support the local community too. We had the place to ourselves and it was stunning.

Better to go to Blue hole from Santo. When you get to Champagne Bay you will not want to go anywhere else for the day but there!!! 😎
